Houston, home to the world’s largest medical center
Since winning its independence from Mexico in 1836, Houston has grown to become the fourth largest city in the United States with a population of more than 6 million people. While well known for its oil and energy industry, Houston also has a very important distinction in the medical industry. It is home to the largest medical complex in the world – Texas Medical Center. This facility employs more than 100,000 people and sees approximately 8 million patients each year.
Beyond this impressive complex, Houston and nearby cities like Sugar Land and Baytown boast some of the nation’s top-ranked hospitals and medical centers. Houston Methodist and Baylor St. Luke’s are among the leaders.
